Great Poem


I have been trying to read the script cut in these hills— a language carved in the shimmer of stubble and the solid lines of soil, spoken in the thud of apples falling and the rasp of corn stalks finally bare.

The pheasants shout it with a rusty creak as they gather in the fallen grain, the blackbirds sing it over their shoulders in parting, and gold leaf illuminates the manuscript where it is written in the trees.

Transcribed onto my human tongue I believe it might sound like a lullaby, or the simplest grace at table. Across the gathering stillness simply this: "For all that we have received, dear God, make us truly grateful."

~ Lynn Ungar ~

(Blessing the Bread)

That first line.. "I have been trying to read the script cut in these hills.." rocks my heart! I have truly, honestly, been trying to read this script as well. I look out over the water.. the rocks.. the mountains.. the trees.. the birds and the bees! hehe.. okay.. and they are all singing (so happily, joyfully.. ;)) or whispering in a language that I can not quite understand. I think they are all explaining how to bring forth from within that state of Grace. Of Wisdom and of Quiet. A place of unimaginable depth. Calm waters that no matter how big a storm whips up around us.. there is and always will be a deep calm silence that resides far within our being. A Peace that blesses our hearts in every moment. I think nature is trying to teach us to be free, to laugh, to allow the experience of great joy and to celebrate being alive! To go with the flow of life with curious eyes wondering what's around that next corner??
What do you suspect the script is saying in these hills?
Spread the Love!

Snuggling In

What a success! The move is going very well. We are settling in nicely. I haven't been in a blogging state of mind as of late. I've been in a painting, organizing, decorating, exploring state of mind. I choose a lovely little colour called 'macaroni' for our main living room walls. It's really beautiful and I'm so happy we went with it. We have a beautiful fireplace in our living room and the colour looks amazing next to the deep red brick. I LOVE our red brick fireplace. Waiting for the chimney to be inspected and cleaned before building a fire is pure torture.

Here is my husband doing some hard work, covering up the pasty boring brown walls with our cheery macaroni walls. We have lovely dark wood bannister's and a little hard scrubbing with some Murphy's Oil Soap should get them up and shining bright again. Tomorrow a wonderful and highly sympathetic friend is coming over to help me paint the bedroom(s). I choose a beautiful kind of seafoamy green colour for them. A great colour anyway and it looks amazing with a dark chocolate brown.. going to look amazing with some chocolate brown curtains for sure, and some throw cushions. I wonder what those colours represent? I wonder if there is an aurasoma bottle that represents those colours. I should take a look out of curiosity.

Okay, that's all for me for now. Thank you for hanging in with me and stopping by! Wishing you all wonderful abundance and blessings!

I Choose Love

.. a little hectic at times preparing for our upcoming move and pretty easy to loose yourself in the stress and react with grumbles and snips and snaps but I Choose Love!
